01. A House of Plague

A time, a hope, a place, a love
A start, a work, a mold, a change
A move, a pain, a fight, a loss
A turn, a light, a birth, an end…

Walked into a house of plague
The infection everywhere
At first disguised by hollow warmth
Then unleashed upon us

Save us all your prayers, save us all your smiles
Save us all your words and hand to us the truth…

Awaiting the answers you chose to turn into vengeance
Without them we'll never turn the page
And forget about you and your house of plague

Amidst the chaos of our wills
You brought an end to all that was
We stared into a void
Fed up with taste of greed
And though we've walked a world since then
The echoes of your deeds remain…

Walked into a house of plague
We were never to return…

Save us all your prayers, save us all your smiles
Save us all your words and hand to us the truth…

Awaiting the answers you chose to turn into vengeance
Without them we'll never turn the page
And forget about you and your house of plague
Are we ever to return and leave that cold light behind us?
Will you ever turn the key and let us
Leave this rotten house of plague?


02. Bleeding

The beast inside you feeds on your insecurity
It thrives on remnants of the fear from being all alone
You are lost in his dungeon, you stumble and bleed
The smell of blood upon you wakes his need to feed

I'm waiting on the other side while you hide
I'll try to stay here for a while if you like

A single-scented breeze is from where he draws his breath
The richness of her colours incites his need of death

I've waited on the other side for some time
I'll try to stay here for a while if you like

Your wounds are aching, your mind is breaking
The world is changing and you're still bleeding

You'll have to face the fears that led you this far astray
Open your mind and slay the beast inside its own lair

(No wounds remain… The hurting's gone…)
Bring this dream to life and wake up
To the light of her colours
(You found the way… Your heart is home again…)
Let the hatred go and let me
Show you the way home again

Caught in that pit of darkness, I fear a never ending wait
Something about your weakness
Leaves you blind of all your bleeding wounds

Your wounds are aching, your mind is breaking
The world is changing and you're still bleeding
Your wounds are aching, your mind is breaking
The world is changing and you're still bleeding


03. Taste of Sand

I'll be here, waiting for the hours to pass
Watching the days I crave slip through my hands
Caught in here, locked in while my foes raise the glass
Smiling as my empty glass fills up with sand

Wait… don't run from me…
Wait… show yourself to me…

All I am slowly dies within this cold cell
Guilty of a crime made up, the jury was me

Help… you fade from me…
Help… can you throw me the key?
Why… can't I leave? Tell me…
Why… do I lock myself in?

I drink the sand I thought I would walk
And all I ever dreamt dies in a desert
Slowly fading… slowly fading…

Caught in a grim world where dreams turn to sand
Everything dies under the sun at noon
Then the dark of evening buries the remains in its tomb

Help… I fade from you…
Help… can you reach me your hand?
Though I drink the sand of indifference
Hope still remains like a vague smell of rain

I drink the sand I thought I would walk
And all I ever dreamt dies in a desert
Slowly fading… slowly fading…
I drink the sand I thought I would walk
And all I ever dreamt dies in a desert
Slowly fading… slowly fading…


04. Nothing More

How come I don't know where to go?
It seems all I've ever known is gone
My dream has finally ended
After this there's nothing more for me

All my life I've been waiting but now
There's nothing more to wish for

I spent all my years just longing for
This one final dream to come true
Opportunities turned to chains of need
Now it seems I've finally lost my wish for more

All my life I've been waiting
but now there's nothing more to wish for
All my life I've been waiting
But now there's nothing more to live for…


05. Sleepy Town

This insecure state… a constant struggle
There's someone inside you staring back at me

Is it this sleepy town, or is it just me?
Is it just me? Is it just me?

I'm choking myself inside these walls
A never ending road as never ending as me

Is it these concrete walls, or is it just me?
Is it this sleepy town, or is it just me?
Is it just me? Is it just me?
Is it just me? Is it just me?

Is it this sleepy town?
Is it these concrete walls?


06. Liar on the Mount

Through all these years
The truth has been a stranger to me
We met many times but never got to know each other
I was used and fed with lies by who I thought were you
I left my way of life to be all you said were true

Now all this sadness washes over me and
I feel like I'm drowning
I tried to call for help but the only thing
I could feel was misery…

I did not want to walk alone through this barren wasteland
You turned your back on me when I reached out
It's all clear to me, it's you who choose to leave us here
There's no use in looking back
Since I know you won't appear

"I am the Lord thy God…"

Blindly I would follow you as you
Preached to me your truth
I climbed your mountain a million times
I was told I needed you
To behold your enlightened view
I know now there is nothing there to see
I renounce your divinity

Slowly I woke up, slowly I saw
The lies you told faded away
A water was rising, the water was truth
It washed away the dirt of you as it
Washed away all that was true

Now all this sadness washes over me and
I feel like I'm drowning
I've tried to call for help but the only thing
I can feel is misery…
I hope that sadness washes over you
And you find yourself drowning
And when you call for help from the ones you hurt
The answer will be one of silence…


07. Hiding

All the things we do when no one is watching
All the things we say when no one listens
In times of solitude we find ourselves…

I think it's funny, I think it's kind of sad
That we lose control
The way that people always seem to fall
When they say "hello"
Until "good bye" ends the lie

All the things we feel with people beside us
All the thoughts we think when someone listens
In times of multitude we hide ourselves…

Some people fight it, some people do not care
If they lose control
And some embrace it, the way they always fall
When they say "hello"
But still "good bye" ends the lie and fades their smile

We are all in hiding, protecting what's inside
We are all just hiding, afraid to bare ourselves
Afraid to be…

A smile won't break me, a cry won't kill me
But still I'm hiding, deep inside me
The strength escapes me, I can't be set free
I'm trapped and feeling lonely…
Why can't I just be me?

We are all in hiding, protecting what's inside
We are all just hiding, afraid to bare ourselves
We are all in hiding, protecting what's inside
We are all in hiding, afraid to bare ourselves
Afraid to be… afraid to live…


08. This Cold Heart of Mine

It all just slipped away
Although I tried so hard to hold on
And all those times we failed
Echo through this loss of mine
I find it kind of strange
That though I've been through this before
The pain is just as great
When alone with just a bleeding heart

Bleeding the blood of the life we shared
Leaving me here with a cold, black stare

This cold heart of mine, once a trusted shrine
Now only holds contempt
All I thought would be turned into debris
Crushed by the weight of a craving need

Thoughts of another me
Cut through this cold heart of mine
But the torment of losing me is greater than losing you

I find myself immersed in a weakness
That I've feared for so long
An uninvited guest that has stalked me
Through the alleys of my mind
I need to turn around and fight the man I so despise
I need to heal these wounds and
Revive this cold heart of mine

Thoughts of another me
Cut through this cold heart of mine
But the torment of losing me is greater than losing you

Just a brief leap of air, a moments rest in this frantic quest
Proud to stand but he remains… Lurking in the shadows…
Waiting for a chance to strike again
And to make me pay with myself

Thoughts of another me
cut through this cold heart of mine
But the torment of losing me is greater than losing you
A need to defeat my foe is growing in this heart of mine
For the torment of losing me is greater than losing you


09. And She Slowly Dies

Worn out eyes revealing an old and tired mind
Battered through years and years of merciless abuse
Facing this assault of ours is tearing me apart
Watching the soil of her slowly turn to dust

I hear her cries… Screams of torment heard by none
I watch her die… Signs of death are all around…

Everything we dared to hope is lost and so are we
Don't you see that all we had
Is lost in this search for more?

I stare into a mirror of shame and shattered pride
Feeling the heart of man drain itself of blood
Smash the mirror and try to see the other side
But all that I find is the wall we stand behind

I hear her cries… Signs of death are all around…

All the years we never cared resound and leave her numb
Ain't no way for her to hide and flee her dying fate

If I could change you, if I could heal your bleeding wounds I should…
If I could change you, if I could heal your bleeding wounds I would…

But words are not enough…
Wake up and face tomorrow now
Before we find our dream's a nightmare

And she slowly dies...
And she slowly dies…
And she slowly dies…
And she slowly dies…

If I could change you, if I could heal your bleeding wounds I should
If I could change you, if I could heal your bleeding wounds I would…
If I could change you, if I could heal your bleeding wounds I should
If I could change you, if I could heal your bleeding wounds I would…
